Meet Gloria Donovan ... The San Francisco Wedding Planner's Cougar!

Six volumes of The San Francisco Wedding Planner series have been released and are available in ebook format for only 99 cents each. Don't miss out on the fun!  Next week round two, the backstories of all the characters, will be released, and Ruth L. Snyder suggested the authors go on a “Blog Hop” to give the readers a sneak peek. Other authors from Helping Hands Press will also participate to introduce readers to their characters and stories as well.

When The San Francisco Wedding Planner series was in the planning process, each of us was asked to select the character we would most like to focus on for round two. Surprise, surprise!  I chose Heather's mother, Gloria Rasmussen Donovan. We are alike in a few ways.  I have a thirty-four year son who cringes when the phone rings, waiting to hear my honest opinion of his life and how to raise my granddaughters ... And let's not forget my academy award worthy guilt-trip provocations.  

Gloria meddles in every aspect of her daughter's life (isn't that a mom's job?).  Being widowed, she is trying to find herself ... Unfortunately, it's in the teen and make-up section of Nordstrom's. "Dress Young, Feel Young" is one of her mantras, the other being, "Date Young, Feel Young."  Both a source of embarrassment for Heather and entertainment for her staff.

Close your eyes -- picture a 50+ woman in a hot pink tank top, skin-tight leopard print capris, spiked heels, and pouty, over-painted lips....and listen to this song:

That's Gloria!

And don’t forget to stop by all the other blogs on this tour. Some of the authors are even hosting giveaways, so you won’t want to miss those!
